Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Lela Rose

I woke up early Sunday morning to go backstage for the Lela Rose show at Lincoln Center. I could tell the moment I stepped in the room, that Lela was one of the most down-to-earth designers around (I mean, she's from Texas, after all). She also had her entire family back there (including her dog, Stitch) and I found that completely endearing. You'll see the photos I snapped below...and the shoes, oh the shoes! I caught some quite lovely shots of them and oohed and ahhed over them as they went down the runway. Two things to remember this spring: camo, lace. My favorite look from Lela was a guipure lace mirrored sheath. I saw it on the hanger, then the model. Either way, it looked stunning and now I must own it! The jacket and pants that also featured the guipure lace were just as fancy, and so welcome for spring. ADORE.

Beauty deets? Hair by Ted Gibson, nails by Essie and Make-up by Romy Soleimani with Stila Cosmetics. Loved it all. 
An organza gown, one of the closing gowns. Love the embroidery!

I got Lauren Conrad leaving the show...open-back dress...movie star sunnies.

Ohhhhh the shoes! They're from Lela's Payless line - amazing, right?
Check out these camo-inspired wedges...squeal!

My fav look of the show...I knew it the minute I saw it backstage. Such heart palpitations.

Spring tweeds and silk matelassè in colors such as ink blue, cool lilac, bright coral and sunflower contrast against the silver dusted lace and faded organzas that complete the collection. -- Lela Rose

Lela Rose herself doing her thang backstage before the show. She's so sweet!

Lace on pants is just as chic! LOVE.
